Very rare to find a piece of this quality and design. This is your chance to own a French Château / Manoir quality piece of French religious history.
The clearly cast and detailed Christ sits on a cross of perfectly faded red velvet, there is a patch of wear below the Christ where the cross has been touched often in devotion.
The velvet sits on an intricately carved wooden cross. The carving is crisp and well executed.
There is a split in the right hand arm of the cross. It is not loose and could easily be repaired and blended in with the ebonised wood. This has not been done by quintessentially French in line with our policy of presenting objects in as found condition with their stories intact. The damage is reflected in the price.
The bronze details, including the intricate holy water basin and lions heads are delightful, making this a top quality, carefully crafted treasure.
The crucifix measures 15.5" 40cm long and 8.5" 21cm wide.
